I'm attempting to set up a staging server for a live EE powered website. I decided to use xampp but I'm having problems getting everything working.

On the live website EE's control panel links look like this


But on my staging setup the same link looks like this


The result is an immediate refresh back to the main page of the control panel: I'm unable to navigate further.

I've updated the config.php, index.php, database.php files with the correct paths. Does anyone have any experience with an issue like this?

    are you sure that you update all files? Because the second url (which u see for staging) is correct url for EE >=2.8. – Max Lazar Oct 15 '14 at 19:42
  • Ah yes! I did try to run the Updater addon to update the site to latest EE but it did not work, it must have updated part of the files. When I tried to revert I forgot to copy over all of the folders. Thank you everything is working now! – benjivm Oct 16 '14 at 4:02
  • This question appears to be off-topic because it is about not completed update process – Max Lazar Oct 16 '14 at 5:05
